Snorkel S2755RT Narrow Compact Rough Terrain Scissors Make USA Debut

Tue January 29, 2019 - National Edition

Following their European launch in 2017, Snorkel has introduced its narrow compact rough terrain scissor lifts to the North American market at World of Concrete 2019.

Expanding its current family of compact rough terrain scissor lifts, the two new narrow models are ideal for working in confined spaces with rough terrain or uneven ground conditions. The Snorkel S2755RT delivers a maximum working height of 32 ft. 4 in. (10.1 m) and a platform capacity of 661 lbs. (300 kg) from a chassis that is just 4 ft. 9 in. (1.45 m) wide. In the same narrow width, Snorkel also now offers the S2255RT, a smaller version with a maximum working height of 27 ft. 3 in. (8.5 m) and a lift capacity of 926 lbs. (420 kg).

The two new lifts share many features with Snorkel's existing line of compact rough terrain scissor lifts, the Snorkel S2270RT, Snorkel S3370RT and Snorkel S3970RT, including a large roll-out deck extension, non-marking tires, automatic self-levelling stabilizers, an oscillating axle and powerful four wheel drive as standard. All five models are sold with a Kubota diesel engine, but are also available with bi-energy power source, which provides the option to run the lift on either the diesel engine, or on 24V battery power. This gives flexibility on the job site, permitting the same lift to be used outdoors on rough terrain on diesel power, and indoors with zero emissions on battery power.

The Snorkel S2255RT and S2755RT compact scissor lifts are a proven product that has been in production in Snorkel's facility in Levin, New Zealand, for many years, predominantly sold to customers in Australasia. With their narrow width, yet high lift capacity and rough terrain performance, these lifts are gaining popularity globally, particularly as their low overall weight means that they can be easily towed by light commercial vehicles in many countries. The Snorkel S2255RT weighs just 5,313 lbs. (2,410 kg) and the Snorkel S2755RT weighs 6,062 lbs. (2,570 kg).

Backed by Snorkel's two-year parts and labor, and five-year structural warranty, both models are currently in production and available to order in North America.
